Hope and gratitude

As we are falling more and more in love with these precious children I am overwhelmed with gratitude that we were chosen to be their parents.  I am hopeful that things will go smoothly and am choosing to cling to scripture when bumps in the road arise.

We are having a great weekend enjoying the kids.  I just went and checked on them.  Seeing them in their beds is so powerful to me!  I can’t tell you how many times I tried to picture them sleeping in their beds………….and that would lead to some sweet prayer time for me.  Seeing them there is such an answer to prayer!  God truly has blessed us beyond measure!  They played SO hard this afternoon that I am not surprised that they fell right to sleep.  We have a big day planned tomorrow—I can’t wait!

I feel a need to pray, pray, pray.  Please pray that our sweet littles will join us forever soon.  Pray that the Lord will smooth out the details and that all will go easily.  It is really neat how God uses big life moments like this to draw you closer to Him.  Lets hope that we get our “gotcha date” on the calendar!  Also will you please pray for the children’s foster mom?  She is very bonded to the children and has done a wonderful job.  I know first hand how hard it is to say good-bye.  Pray that the Lord would shower her with joy and peace about the situation.  I am grateful for the friendship we are forming and am looking forward to keeping her up to date on the children.

Have a blessed weekend!
